    On May 11, nearly 30 people attended the MEGUG Drone Mini-conference held at Brunswick Landing. Five great presentations on a wide range of drone and UAV related topics were followed by a tour of the UMaine Augusta Aviation training facility, led by Dan Leclair, and we wound up the day with Mappy Hour at Flight Deck Brewing. See photos from the afternoon on Facebook!

    The Maine Geospatial Institute would like your input on a Professional Masters degree in GIS (MGIS), currently in development through the UMaine system: Survey link

    The MGIS program is designed to fill in a gap in the educational pathways available to professionals in GIS, geospatial, and allied fields (emergency response, forestry, planning, surveyors, etc.). Well-established undergraduate and graduate programs already exist, but there is a need for a Maine-based curriculum that accommodates those already working in the geospatial field and looking for ways to advance their education and career prospects. MGI is looking for input on the content and format of this program that would best serve Maine GIS/geospatial professionals who might be interested in the MGIS degree program.

    Survey available here.

    The Maine GIS User Group is partnering with the Maine Municipal Association for the Maine Municipal Technology & New Energy Conference.  This year’s event is Tuesday, April 28, 2020 at the Augusta Civic Center.

    If you are interested in presenting at the Maine Municipal Technology conference in our GIS track please contact Judy Colby-George as soon as possible.   We are looking for unique and interesting talks focused on GIS for municipalities.  Ideally your talk would feature some new technology or innovation that would be of interest to municipalities but we are open to most anything GIS.  Talks should be 30 minutes, or you can put together a panel discussion that would be a 60 minute slot.  We are flexible, so feel free to contact Judy with any ideas you think would be interesting.

    If you are interested in sponsorship of the 2020 MMA Technology conference, please visit the sponsorship registration page.
